Recent Picks ft. Nyx
Originally I was planning on writing a general guide to NYX cosmetics, but I haven't tried out that many products so that would be a bit unfair.
However, I did visit the counter again and picked up a few new bits. I think I'm starting to be getting a general idea of what I like, what I dislike and what I will definitely be repurchasing.
I was meaning on getting the Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome but it would be sold out for weeks. Everyone's always recommending that particular lip range and I have always been swatching all the shades but never got round to actually buying one.
I wasn't particularly sold on Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks before and unfortunately this one might be joining the ranks of disappointing products. The application is fine, the texture seems nice although quite thin, the colour range is amazing yet they don't wear as well as I would wish them to. The longevity is pretty minimal as well. Overall, I don't think I'll be testing other shades.
The product I did like though and probably will stay faithful to is the Micro Brow Pencil. It comes in 8 shades which is pretty brilliant considering the brow range on a highstreet can be a bit lacking. Ash Brown is a perfect match for me although I do have to seal it with a brow gel otherwise it wouldn't last. I pair it with Benefit's Gimme Brow for an extra oompf and it seems to be working well.
Lastly, I picked up the Skinny Mascara. My lashes are very sparse and short, hence the reason I always struggle trying to define them with a regular wand. This little thing is great for the bottom ones and the roots in general. It does last and I've not noticed any fallout yet. Will be repurchasing for sure.
